  1. There is more than one effect of the partial government shut-down on federal government contractors or their employees. These may include late or missed pay, increased costs from a delay in the contract work, impact of prices from vendors or subcontractors quoted to the prime and now changed, effects on an acquisition that was in process and now delayed by the shut-down. I cannot think of all the possible effects on government contractors and their employees. Since the federal government may partially close its doors once again at the end of the week, you may experience more of an effect.

These include late or missed pay, increased workload from contractors taking some sort of action that was caused by the partial government shutdown, effects on an acquisition that was in process and now delayed by the shut-down. I cannot think of all the possible effects on government employees in the contracting field.

    FAR 16 TO Source Selection

    Alone in a tree-stand without the FAR?
  5. Although GAO's bid protest statistics were issued in early December, I was focused on personal issues. I realized I missed it and posted it here now.
  6. There have been 98 recommendations made by the 809 Panel. Does anyone know if any have been discussed, accepted or rejected?
  7. From Volume 3, Part 1, p. 17. Recommendation 35: Replace commercial buying and the existing simplified acquisition procedures and thresholds with simplified readily available procedures for procuring readily available products and services and readily available products and services with customization.
  8. Government Employee Fair Treatment Act of 2019. Here is complete the Public Law.
  9. The Partial Government Shutdown is having an effect on Federal Contractors, Subcontractors, Vendors, Suppliers, etc. and their employees. Once the Shutdown ends, there will be studies estimating the cost of the Shutdown. But what about now? How bad is it for Federal Contractors and Their Employees out there? This poll asks a simple question with answers from 1 to 5 with 5 being the hardest hit. This poll is anonymous.
  10. The Partial Government Shutdown is having an effect on many, if not all of us. Once the Shutdown ends, there will be studies estimating the cost of the Shutdown. But what about now? How bad is it for Federal Employees out there? This Poll provides a numbered response to answer that question using the numbers of 1 to 5 with 5 being the hardest hit. This poll is anonymous.
  11. Michael: You wrote. You said agreement. I assume it is a contract. We assume your contract has a disputes clause as mentioned by others. If you cannot find one in your contract, let the posters know. That clause, backed by federal law, tells you what to do and what the contracting officer must do. You will note that there are dollar thresholds and time limits in the clause. You believe you did the work, your have a right to be paid for it. As ji said, follow the directions in your contract's clause. Forget the one last chance, force the government to do something by enforcing your rights under the clause.
  12. Yes, they were found around Roswell and shipped to the future Area 51.
  13. The item in the box was an A-12, successor to the U-2, and the precursor to the SR-71. They left Burbank, California in those boxes in the early 1960s and were moved to Area 51 for testing. The A-12 was, and still is, the fastest and highest flying air-breathing plane. One of its pilots referred to the one-seater A-12 as the Hot Rod and the 2-seater SR-71 as the family model.
